In Daniel’s 70 Weeks Prophecy, he prophesied that 70 weeks of years were determined for the Jews. That is, a block of 490 years was set apart for the fulfillment of all things that concerned the Jews (Daniel 9:24). During this period of time, they would also rebuild the Temple and the walls of Jerusalem, and the Messiah would come. He would be killed, and the Temple would once again be destroyed, and all this would be done within this block of time (Daniel 9:25-27). Many, if not most, Christians today believe there is a gap of “X” number of years either between the 69th and 70th weeks of years or between the 69th and ½ week of years and the final 3 ½ years of the 70th week in Daniel’s prophecy. So, what can we say about these things? Was the gap a part of God’s original plan, or did he insert it later, and, if he did insert it later, why did he? Did Jesus know about the gap (cf. Mark 13:32)? Read the rest of this entry »
